Here is also brief information on Seollal which may be helpful to deepen your understanding and knowledge of Korean culture not only of the holiday.

Korean New Year, commonly known as Seollal (Hangul: 설날; RR: Seollal; MR: Sǒllal), is the first day of the lunar calendar. It is the most important of the traditional Korean holidays. It consists of a period of celebrations, starting on New Year's Day. The Korean also celebrate solar New Year's Day on January 1 each year, following the Gregorian Calendar. The Korean New Year holidays last three days, and is considered a more important holiday than the solar New Year's Day. [1]

Korean New Year is typically a family-oriented holiday. The three-day holiday is used by many to return to their home towns to visit their parents and other relatives where they perform the ancestral ritual known as charye (차례). Many Koreans dress up in colorful hanbok. Tteokguk (떡국) (soup with rice cakes) is commonly served.

Sebae

Sebae is a traditionally observed activity on Seollal, and is filial-piety-orientated. Children wish their parents a happy new year by performing one deep traditional bow (rites with more than one bow involved are usually for the dead) and the words saehae bok manhi badeuseyo (Hangul: 새해 복 많이 받으세요) which translates to please receive many blessings in the new year. Parents typically reward this gesture by giving their children new year's money (usually in the form of crisp paper money) and offering words of wisdom, or deokdam. Historically, parents gave out rice cakes (ddeok) and fruit to their children instead.

Folk games

Many traditional games are associated with the Korean New Year. The traditional family board game Yutnori (윷놀이) is still a popular pastime. Traditionally men and boys would fly kites and play jegi chagi (제기차기), a game where a light object is wrapped in paper or cloth, and then kicked in a Footbag like manner. Korean women and girls would have traditionally played neolttwigi (널뛰기), a game of jumping on a seesaw (시소), while children spun paengi (팽이).

InKAS Free Korean Traditional Medicine Consultation for Korean Adoptees

Event date: 2014-01-12

InKAS in collaboration with the Association of Korean Medicine (KOMSTA), will be providing free Korean traditional medicine consultations once a month to Korean adoptees in Korea. Several doctors from the association will be present to consult with during these times.

Korean traditional medicine focuses more on treating the individual as a whole, instead of just one aspect, or ailment. It can be used to treat current ailments, as well as for preventative measures. Common treatments using Korean traditional medicine, include acupuncture, herbal remedies and aromatherapy.

If you're interested in getting a consultation please stop by the InKAS guesthouse on Sunday, January 12th, from 1:30pm to 3:30pm. You must be there by 3pm to receive a consultation. The doctors will be giving an overview of Korean traditional medicine so participants can have a better understanding before receiving treatment.

PLEASE RSVP BY EMAIL contact@inkas.org 

This consultation is great for those suffering from ailments such as migraines, back ache, exhaustion, depression, digestion problems, etc. During the consultation, a doctor will diagnose your problem, suggest treatment options (acupuncture and herbal medication can be given that day for free), and give referrals to make additional appointments (discounts are available for additional treatment outside that day).

DON'T FORGET TO RSVP, THANK YOU!
